When I return form a trip, I typically bring 3000 - 5000 shots per week. For showing them to friends and family, that is obviously too much, so I need to reduce the count down to something like 100 - 150.
My question is not about how to select the best shots in my mind, but on useful and efficient mechanics of doing it [So it is not a duplicate of How do you select the 10 best images from a set of 300? and others like that].
What I tried:
- In Windows, you can just double-click one and use cursor-right and -left to browse through them, and have the other hand on
<DEL>(working in a copy, of course). The disadvantage is that if you go fast, you hit
<DEL>ever so often accidentally, and undoing is tedious
- In LightRoom, I can tag them with something, and later select only tagged ones. Disadvantages are the slowness/lag of display while you browse, and the need to re-export the selection at the end again.
- on the iPad, it is tedious to delete not-selected pictures, as it takes three taps
I'm looking for ideas on other, hopefully better, mechanics. I will have to go a bit back and forth, as there often similar shots from the same subject, with slightly different composition and/or focus. I'd also need a way to do an immediate undo.
How do you do it?
